Food drive set to benefit D/SAOC

Non-perishable food items are being collected at the Ameriprise Financial office, 1400 Central Ave., Fort Dodge, Tuesday through Nov. 15 to be donated to the Domestic and Sexual Assault Outreach Center.

Aligned with its giving priority of Meeting Basic Needs, Ameriprise Financial began a charitable partnership with Feeding America in 2009, which includes both financial and volunteer-based support for the nonprofit and other hunger relief organizations. The goal of the partnership is to help meet an increased demand on food banks and work toward finding long-term solutions to domestic hunger. Through the efforts of its advisers, employees, retirees and clients, the company has provided more than 23 million meals and 80,000 hours volunteer hours for hunger relief efforts across the U.S.
